A reminder to members of City Daily Photo: the theme day for August is Young At Heart. And some notes to readers in the Ottawa area or paying a visit sometime over the summer or early fall. First, Fortissimo is happening this week from Thursday to Saturday in the evening on Parliament Hill. Second, the event La Machine will be taking place downtown from July 27th-30th. Third, the Kontinuum multimedia light show is underway until mid-September, occupying an LRT station beneath the downtown core. And finally, MosiaCanada has taken over Jacques Cartier Park in Gatineau as of the end of June, and will be running until mid-October. I have already taken in that last event, and photos will be forthcoming. I plan on one or two more visits there.
A good sized model of the Vimy Ridge Memorial was a centerpiece for this exhibit at the War Museum. It is interesting to see Walter Allward's masterpiece from different perspectives.
This collection of paintings could be found on a nearby wall. The central figure is Arthur Currie, a senior commanding general of the Canadian forces during the war.
I finish off with two more of Allward's Vimy sculptures, quite dramatic against dark backgrounds like this. Tomorrow I'll show you some of the permanent collection in the museum.
